Unlike traditional 2d drafting, why does Revit have to be so literal in defining its section cuts?  Is there any way to adjust clip plane settings to pick up both a high window (5'-0" a.f.f.) and a lowered dock entrance door (3'-0" b.f.f.).  Normally, I would tweak the cut plane up or down a foot from the typical 4'-0" a.f.f., but as soon as I do this one of the two elements in question is lost in the view.  There are not enough high windows to justify creating a new high-window floor plan view, nor are there enough dock height doors to justify a dock and lowered level entrance plan.

This is the reason for plan regions.  You can place as many of these as you want on a plan and control the view in those regions.  The plan region is define by a line that you can turn on or off in the view but the region still shows as defined.  You can read about plan regions in your help.

Thanks, it works like a charm!  The plan region dashed perimeter line is not visible when printed, correct?

If it shows in the view then it prints.  Turn it off in VG under annotations.

You should be good with leaving the plan regions visible. I've never turned them off, and they've never printed. I have a feeling they count as crop regions.

If you go to print, and hit the Setup button, you'll see that the default options have Ref/work planes set to not print, along with scope boxes, and crop boundaries.  In this location you can also choose to replace halftone with thin lines... I wouldn't recommend messing with any of this.  It gets confusing when display/print settings are... decentralized, and Revit is usually so good in this department.
